Micro-80 Magazine (Australia)

Micro-80 was first published out of Adelaide, Australia in December, 1979 selling for the reasonable price of $2.50 Australian dollars (about $2.00 US). At 31 pages, there were two sections, a software section offering a number of Level 1 and Level 2 programs (Super Mastermind, Digital Clock, Snake, Merge, Loader and WordProc) and a hardware section showing how to improve your CTR-41 cassette recorder. The first editorial encouraged programmers to submit programs which would be published (and Micro-80 would pay for), and advertisers were encouraged to submit adverts (which the advertisers would pay for).

By issue three, Micro-80 had grown to 56 pages, twice the size of issue one, demonstrating the popularity of this homegrown "down under" magazine. It was written in a very personal, folksy style more like a club magazine than a commercial periodical. It was packed with great, easily digestible information. There were never many advertisements to wade through (unlike the U.S.-based '80 mags.) apart from their own 80-Micro products, a commercial offspring of the magazine specialising in TRS-80 (and later System 80) add-on hardware. They kept all these ads in the middle pages of the magazine leaving the articles and programs free of clutter. Micro-80 also came out in a cassette edition, for those who could afford it and who didn't want to spend the late nights typing the programs in.
